    I've got 2 routers both setup with the latest version of Tomato Victek's mod ND.

    Basic setup is

    Router A:
    Access point + WDS
    DHCP Server enabled
    Static DHCP entries

    Router B:
    Access point + WDS
    DHCP disabled
    No Static DHCP entries (you'll see why this is mentioned in a few)

    When I click on Device List on router A, all the devices currently connected to the entire network are shown - regardless of whether they are connected to router A or Router B (wired or wireless).

    The only difference is that the devices that are shown in device list for router B do not have associate hostnames. On Router A, the hostnames are shown (due to Static DHCP being set)

    Is there anyway for Router B to get and display the hostnames in the device list from Router A?

    So far the only way I've been able to get it working is by just duplicating the Static DHCP entries from Router A to Router B.

    But that's a bit tedious. I did it in Router A - why can't Router B just yank the host names automatically?

    Thanks in advance.

    I am looking for a solution to the same issue. My gateway is set to and dns on the access points and wds routers are set to be the static dns addresses of my isp. Anyone know how to make the wds and access point routers list host names in the device list? I am using Tomato RAF on all routera. Only the gateway router lists the host names. I tried setting the static dns on the access point and wds machines to but that did not work.
